Lean Unit 1: Variation in Production Systems

View Flyer

To develop the tools needed to build lean, the Associated General Contractors of Amercia (AGC of America) has developed the Lean Construction Education Program.  All construction team members can learn the building blocks to transform projects and companies into a lean operating system.

Unit 1:  Variation in Production Systems
Lean Construction challenges all project stakeholders to develop and apply better ways to manage the overall construction process.  This course introduces "variation," a foundational  Lean Construction concept.  In the construction process, the work we do is all connected and variation in even one of those processes affects us all.  This course provides tools to help participants recognize sources of variation on their own projects, examine variation's effect on operations, and mitigate the effects of variation in their every-day work. 

Following completion of this course, participants will have the ability to:
1) Define the different types of variation
2) Explain the concept of throughput and distinguish it from productivity
3) Discuss the role of variation in production operations
4) List sources of variation in construction settings
5) Explain and contrast the variation mitigation techniques
